Fourth Avenue: A New Development Every Three Blocks

The Crest

Today's New York Post weighs in with a long story about Fourth Avenue and all of the new development that is rising on the strip. It notes that there's a new development approximately every three blocks from Warren Street all the way to 19th Street. Here's a sample:
The Crest, at 302 Second St. (at Fourth Avenue), opened its sales office this past weekend and eight units were spoken for in just one day. The 68 units - one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms - start at $354,000 and go up to $751,000.

Within the next 18 months, there will be a slew of others: Park Slope Court, at 110 Fourth Ave., near Warren Street, with 49 units consisting of studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms; 255 Fourth Ave., a 41-unit boutique Scarano Architects and Developers Group project at Carroll Street; The Argyle, 410 Fourth Ave., at Seventh Street, a 12-story, 54-unit condo; and 500 Fourth Ave., at 12th Street, a 137-unit, 12-story luxury building. There are even more developments in the works, farther south along Fourth.

Those who know Fourth will likely be shaking their heads right now.
That's Crest, above. More to come.

I'm really going to miss all the auto body shops and gas stations. Future generations will dream about Fourth Avenue as it once was: stained with oil, and cars on jacks all over the sidewalk. Just leave us our U-Haul depot, I beg of you!

i think this is great. 10 years ago, while not very dangerous, it wasn't a pleasurable experience just walking to the train. All the shops will have to gentrify oor they will risk being tossed out by landlords for the higher rents that they will be able to get
